What You'll Get
Spicy food is a great way to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at co-ed canoe camp. Savor a variety of spices with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of traditional Indian cuisine at Café of India in Harvard Square.
Amid walls replete with India-inspired artwork and tapestries, a curved bar, glossy wood furnishings, and warm overhead lighting, Café of India halts hunger thanks to a menu crafted from authentic recipes sourced from diverse regions of India. Patrons can pair a lively debate about the feasibility of naan-based tennis racquets with an appetizer, like aloo tiki ($4), a savory sampling of potato patties deep-fried in chickpea batter. For entrees, poultry-geists can quell bird cravings with chicken curry, a flavor bomb of boneless chicken cooked in thick curry sauce and garnished with fresh coriander ($14); vegetarians and fair-weather veggie fans can fill up with saag paneer, cubes of homemade cheese, fresh spinach, and spices, all garnished with fresh coriander ($14). Café of India also serves a tantalizing selection of tandoori fare like tandoori shrimp, fresh jumbo shrimp marinated in spiced yogurt and baked on skewers within the hot depths of a tandoor oven ($18).
Boston magazine mentioned Café of India. More than 120 Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars, and 72% of Urbanspooners recommend it. Zagat gives the food at Café of India a very good to excellent rating.
